Extending our reach beyond the ocean yet again to help fight hunger in local communities! This time, our team got to experience the magic of April in Augusta, Georgia at one of the hottest social events – Taste of the Master Chefs.
Six years ago, Verlasso Salmon revolutionized farmed salmon by introducing a feed model that utilized 1 pound of feeder fish to raise 1 pound of salmon when the industry standard world wide exceeded 4:1. This breakthrough, along with other attributes on the water dramatically changed the way in which the NGO community viewed how ocean-raised salmon could be farmed sustainably. This outlook and promise changed the way in which the industry viewed feed models. Innovations soon followed that allowed organizations such as Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch to recommend ocean-raised salmon. Salmon that was categorically “avoid” now had a chance to navigate to “ Good Alternative” or better. Six years ago, Verlasso Salmon became the first ever ocean-raised farmed salmon to be recommended as a “good alternative”.
Unlike any other documentary short film about aquaculture, this one takes you on a journey through the eyes of an environmentally conscious 10-time Paddleboard World Champion and Professional Big Wave Surfer, Jamie Mitchell. By capturing this unique relationship on camera, we can bring this real journey to Verlasso’s communities. A convincing story that gives sense of place, sense of time, and sense of care at every level. A true sense of well-being, convincingly portrayed through the eyes of the surfer.
When the ocean is your home, office and a place you eagerly await to visit to restore your peace and tranquility – you tend to care for it just a bit more than others do. 2018 was set from the very beginning to be a journey of deepening our love and understanding for the ocean and how every decision we make as an industry affects ecosystems, livelihoods and precious resources. As an aquaculture company, it is important to reach outside the boundaries of the farm and to illuminate the environmental and ocean issues in a real-life setting.
The Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner on Christmas Eve has been an Italian tradition for hundreds of years. It is traditionally a lengthy dinner with at least seven fish courses, sometimes as many as twelve depending upon the family. The fish that are included and how they are prepared depend upon the long standing traditions of the family. At Verlasso, our celebration is easy to agree on, so we decided to put our spin on this tradition and have a "Feast of the Seven Salmons"!
Dinner time should be a time to disconnect from the outside world. A safe haven to talk about the happenings in your life and the lives of those seated with you. A designated time to decompress, connect with loved ones and remove yourself from everyday stressors.
